Some of the Hibernate team members all gather together next week in Paris.
If you are around, come join us for a Questions & Answers session at the ParisJUG.
It’s Tuesday December 2nd 2015 at 19:30.
We will discuss anything Hibernate, no slide, simply come with your questions on:
Feedback about our recent 5.5.0.Final release has been great, and while the good news is that nobody reported significant issues,
some people also pointed out that the new sorting system was a bit limited.
So we’ve been working on enhancing the FieldBridge API to make sure that those more expert users who implement their
own bridging would have a better control on how sorting works as well.
We’ve also started some work to push the performance higher, and overall I’m proud to state that this 5.5.1.Final release
is including some small internal polish, but results in measurable improvements.
The fourth bug-fix release for Hibernate ORM 5.0 has just been tagged and published.
There are 52 issues resolved in this release. 20 of those came out of the recent Jira cleanup. Initially that initiative pulled in roughly 750 issues. To date, 66 of those have been resolved - fixed or verified as out-of-date, unable-to-reproduce, etc. An additional 14 have been more propoerly reclassified as feature or enhancement requests rather than bugs. The really cool part is the amount of community help we have gotten in making that happen! Thanks to everyone responding, verifying and even fixing alot of these bugs!
The complete list of changes can be found here. People without a Hibernate Jira account will not be able to access the previous link and can access the changelog in GitHub; the issue I reported with Atlassian has been resolved and is ready for deployment into our hosted environment, I just do not know when that will happen.
I am ending my day totally exhausted but happy.
Today we organised Red Hat 4 Kids in the Red Hat France office.
Every year at Red Hat, we organise a Red Hat Week to celebrate our culture.
And in good open source community way, each local office expresses how it pleases this event.
This year, I proposed to do a Devoxx4Kids for the children of French Red Hatters.
Red Hat 4 Kids (aka a copy paste of Devoxx 4 Kids) initiates children from 6 to 12+ to the notion of programming.
Sharing our knowledge to teach them what daddy or mummy does. Sounds cool.
